In addition to its activities in public transport and freight transport by rail and water, the FOT also has certain competencies in goods transport by road. It is responsible for making amendments to the Heavy Vehicle Fee, which is discussed in the Joint Committee on the Land Transport Agreement with the EU.

In connection with the Land Transport Agreement, Switzerland also produced new legal regulations for market access in the road haulage business. Since 1 January 2004 all transport companies (including passenger transport) require a licence issued by the FOT.
